As expected, and just in time for the release of the Mass Effect: Andromeda trial version, AMD has kicked out new drivers.
The new Radeon Crimson ReLive 17.3.2 drivers are said to boost the game’s performance by around 12% on an RX 480 and they have added an AMD Optimised Tesselation Profile.
The drivers are available now from the AMD website so grab them and find out if Mass Effect: Andromeda performance has been boosted. Also, take note of some of the issues with these drivers as they affect Battlefield 1 and Ghost Recon Wildlands.
